I'm not sure about rinsing the sand, um id put the rock and fish in separate containers just to avoid any accidents.

If any corals are alive then id expose them to as little air as possible.. if you feel they r getting too much air then just splash some water on them. That's what I do when I do WC's and my corals pop outta the water..

Other than this, not too sure on the other stuff lol hopefully I helped a little bit
Helps a TON! Thank you!! Ok, one more question haha... What about this stuff? Bought it when I was cycling my African tank not knowing it was for sw... Should I use it?

I also need to know how to move this star fish, I'm really worried about it! I think it's one that can't be exposed to air....

Thank you! So far everyone is still alive, there is some kind of Foxface, a damsel and a black & white fish, idk what that is. I'm not sure the star is gonna make it :/ I put a heater in the tote and they are all huddled up to it I got most of the water in and am putting in rock now, the water is super cloudy... I hope I didn't have to acclimate the rock, I got 1/2 of it in already!!!
